Posted at 4:53 AM, Aug 27, 2018

BREATHITT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– The trial of the woman accused of murdering her roommate begins in Breathitt County.

Imojean Daniel was indicted in December for shooting and killing Joy Turner back in September of 2016 at a mobile home off Long’s Creek Road, owned by Daniel.

Turner’s family says she was staying with Daniel when she was found dead.

Officials say Daniel initially told police that Turner committed suicide, but five months later the medical examiner ruled it a homicide.

Daniel entered a not guilty plea when she appeared in court last year. Her trial is set to begin Monday morning at 9 a.m.
